During the late 1960s and 70s my career began on newspapers starting with Paddock Publications in both Arlington Heights and Libertyville. I began as a lab man working with thirteen photographers. I was promoted to staff photographer and eventually became Director of Photography for twelve weekly papers in Libertyville. After winning many NPPA, IPPA and AP photo awards I left to become a staff photographer at the Waukegan News-Sun, an 80,000 circulation daily newspaper covering Lake County, Illinois. I was promoted to Assistant Director of Photography and then to Photo Editor. One award the paper won, of which I am really proud, is Picture Editor of Year from the National Press Photographer's Association.

In 1979 I left the newspaper business to become a photographer/producer for WBBM-TV News/CBS. I worked, specifically, for Bill Kurtis. I became writer and producer for the Two on Two documentary show, in many cases combining video with stills.

In the early 1980s I began working for Time Magazine, out of the Midwest Bureau, and other New York based magazines including People, US and Business Week and began to develop a corporate client base. During those years I shared a studio in Chicago. Currently, I have a studio, which I built myself, just west of O'Hare Airport---22 minutes to Terminal 3. Much of my work, now, involves photographing people on location.
